Gotcha.. Thanks for posting it, but I'll just take it as speculation for the time being. Wouldn't surprise me if KH at least reached out to Lucic though.

What would you give for Shattenkirk?

 

NOT Larkin, that's for sure!

 

IF they'd take Nyquist, I'm in!

I would do $12M, yes. Why? Simple: our need is that great. Buffalo's need isn't nearly as great as ours, which is why I'm not convinced that they're prepared to go two or three million higher than the consensus market value. They don't need a Steven Stamkos. We absolutely do. (Unless, perhaps, we can acquire a guy like Martin Hanzal. But even then, there's a big talent gap between Hanzal and Stamkos.)

Does Backes still seem practical? He's going to want a long term and he's already 32 and his production was worse than Zetterberg's. It got to a point where St. Louis was using him on the third line.

2 year deal would be ideal but I think he's going to want a long term deal.


I *love* Backes, and it's no secret that I've wanted him on the Wings for awhile. That being said, I wouldn't sign him for more than a 3 year deal to start.

Do not trade Larkin

What if Coyotes decide to retire his jersey?

He is the best player theyve ever had

Nah....Nyquist plus picks.

Let us not forget that even though Toronto will have Matthews and Buffalo has Eichel, we have someone named Larkin that just happens to be nearly as good as Eichel. Plus, Stamkos said how much he enjoyed and felt chemistry with him at the all star game. My point is, we have our pluses too that are an attraction.

It's not all about Stamkos though.

 

There's Okposo, Eriksson, Ladd, Backes, Lucic, Radulov etc. 

Seriously, if we lose on Stamkos, we can add two solid forwards and possibly trade for a top tier d-man.  Either way, we're in a good position heading in to July 1.

Holland is sounding cocky. He better be sure he's getting Stamkos.

From Nick Cotsonika:

 

Vitale is injured. If the Red Wings put him on LTIR, they save his cap charge and save all $7.5M of Datsyuk's cap charge.

Ken Holland said the focus with his new found cap space will be replacing Pavel Datsyuk. Looking for an impact forward.

 

BOOM! Bring Stamkos here baby! Trade for Shattenkirk, too!

So...If Stamkos does sign with Detroit...Does he get #91?

 

I think if he's attached to that number, you throw that in there as a possibility for him when coming here.  He's that caliber of a player.
